Ruth went to Boaz’s field with the intention of sustaining her and her mother in laws life. She was working for barley. But when she left that evening she had more than she had planned on. In addition to the barley she had gained a place to refresh herself when she became weary during the day and food and water to give her strength as she worked.

Ruth had went into the fields expecting to just get by and left with blessings that exceeded her imagination.

Isn’t that just like our lives with Jesus? We come to Him just wanting a Savior, but in addition to that he feeds us, supplies our every need and gives us rest. He becomes our provider. Take comfort in knowing that God has great plans to bless you beyond what you can even imagine.
